The report analyzes the economic impacts of water pollution controls on the Pulp, Paper and Paperboard Industry. The study was prepared under the supervision of the Office of Analysis and Evaluation, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. As required by the Clean Water Act, the study presents for consideration the economic impacts of regulation proposed under that Act which would control the industry's discharge of its effluents. The impacts analyzed are: the resulting increase in production costs, changes in prices and the quantity produced, and changes in the level of profitability. These economic impacts in turn lead to impacts on the amount of capacity expansion or contraction, number of mills closed, impacts on the number of persons employed, community impacts and the regulations' effects on the U.S. balance of trade.
